Home Furniture Retailer Expands Its Presence in Downtown Bethlehem

A popular home furnishings retailer is expanding its presence in downtown Bethlehem.

Domaci, which offers furniture, lighting, rugs, and more, on March 16 will launch a Domaci Home pop-up event that will eventually add permanent business at 521 Main St. Design studio at 523 Main St.

Domaci co-founder Derek Clark said the pop-up store, which features a new selection of furniture and home décor, is expected to run through most of spring.

“The building owner is doing some construction on that space in a couple of months,” Clark said. “So we occupy this space until then. Once the construction is over, we will go back to that space, but it will look a little different. It will be an expanded part of our furniture store.”

The Domaci Home pop-up store will be staffed by a knowledgeable team of designers and home furnishing specialists, and customers will be able to purchase new flooring models and “last chance” to be able to take them home the same day.

MYdomaci Reward members will enjoy a sneak peek at the pop-ups, featuring refreshments, special sales, gifts and entertainment, from 5-8pm on March 11.

“Derek and I are excited about the upcoming expansion and the opportunity to share even more great furniture and decor with our guests,” said Domaci co-founder Warren Clark. “While we have always had a plethora of additional options and will continue to provide our guests with online shopping, we appreciate the importance of being able to see and feel some of the essential pieces in person, and that will provide this opportunity.”

The Clarks, who founded Domaci as an e-commerce company in 2015, has been using two areas of the newly renovated Myers Building since December 2020.

The 523 Main Street space was once home to Clarks’ first Domaci store, which opened in 2016 before moving operations to 21 E. Third St. In southern Bethlehem after a year and a half. The store on the south side of town closed in the summer of 2020.

In the middle of Bethlehem’s downtown space, customers can shop at Domasi Market, which features decorative accents and household items.

Items include candles, cards, watches, cleaning products, drinking utensils, dinnerware and pillows, wall art such as posters and street signs, personal care products such as imported Italian toothpaste and American-made goat’s milk soap, and seasonal decor such as Christmas decorations, tree brushes and kitchen towels.

At the back of the space, clients can enjoy Domaci Design Studio’s design services, featuring in-house design consultancy and custom design plans for a single room or your entire home.

Designers can help you “find and furnish a unique home” across a wide range of furniture, floor lamps, tables, area rugs, vinyl flooring fabrics and more.

The studio also offers online design, where clients enjoy individual design services regardless of their location, as well as bespoke services such as color consulting, gallery walls, room layout updates, and property curation.

In addition to its own market and design studio, Domaci presents its own Domaci Flea collection – an eclectic selection of unique, exotic, vintage-inspired and handcrafted household goods – at Plants + Vintage, in collaboration with Steel City Plant Co. On the second floor of the historic Woolworth Building at 551 Main Street, Suite 205.

Domaci, which means “home” in Czech – a nod to Derek’s family roots, also runs a stand regularly during holidays at Christkindlmarkt in south Bethlehem.

The soon-to-be Domaci Home space formerly housed upscale freight store Designer Consigner, which has moved to 77 W. Broad St. Unit 19 (next to The Joint Coffee Co.) in Jan.
